What Is The Difference Between Verilog Hdl And Hdl
HDL, or high density lipoprotein, is a molecule in the body that is responsible for the transport of lipids (fats) from various organs including blood vessels back to the liver for processing and possible elimination. Because it helps prevent accumulation of lipids in blood vessels, HDL cholesterol is ...Read more
Good vs. Bad: Hdl is the 'healthy' cholesterol that 'cleans' the blood vessels of 'blockages' (plaques). Ldl is the 'lousy' cholesterol that is the main component of the arterial plaques. One would want a very high HDL (above 50 mg/dl for women) and a very low LDL (close to 60-70 mg/dl). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
HDL is Good: Hdl or high density lipoprotein and LDL or low density lipoprotein are particles that are important in cholesterol metabolism. Hdl is the "good" particle that pulls cholesterol out of the arterial wall. Ldl is the "bad" particle particularly when it is "dense" or cholesterol laden that allow cholesterol transportation and deposition into the artery wall accelerating atherosclerosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Directional: Total serum cholesterol is made up of several component lipoproteins. Amongst these are fractions: hdl-c is the "good", which you want to be as high as possible and ldl-c is the "bad" which you want to be as low as possible. Lifestyle and, if needed, drug therapy, can help towards those goals. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Big difference: Ldl, when found in high concentrations in the blood, can enter your artery walls and initiate an inflammatory reaction that culminates in the development of atherosclerosis, plaque formation in the arterial wall. Hdl had many functions. If HDL is functioning well it can help to prevent atherosclerosis. One of its major functions is to remove cholesterol from the arterial wall. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Cholesterol: High-density lipoprotein is known as "good" cholesterol. Low-density lipoprotein is known as "bad" cholesterol. Thought that HDL tends to carry cholesterol away from the arteries and back to the liver, where it's passed from the body. Ldl can slowly build up in the inner walls of the arteries that supply the heart and brain, with other substances, it can form plaque (thick & hard) in the arteries. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is my cholesterol high (195) because my HDL is high (57)? LDL is near optimal (118). I am taking Accutane (last month), if that makes a difference.
Cholesterol NOT high: Your cholesterol is NOT high. 195 is perfectly fine. The higher the HDL the better. If your HDL was 40 your total chol. Would be 178; FAR better to have 195 with HDL 57 than 178 with HDL 40. But high cholesterol is not the main cause of heart disease- the real cause is inflammation! See http://tinyurl.

Did fasting lipidp totalC 191, LDL 102, HDL 80, nonHDL 2.4. Q's:can HDL that is too high be a Problem I.e.80? Would ttalC 191 b better lowr? & nonHDL rnge says 60-130 mine ws 2.4! What does that mean?
No.: Your HDl cannot be too high. The higher the better. Your total is higher because it is included in a complex formula which contains your high HDL. Your lipid profile is excellent! Don't stress. That being said, if there is early cardiovascular disease in your family you may want to discuss other markers for cardiovascular risk including but not limited to an NMR lipid screening. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Cholesterol Janitor!: Hdl stands for high density lipoprotein, aka. The "good cholesterol." it runs around, sweeps up cholesterol, and delivers it to the liver. Having low HDL is linked with having more heart attacks. We don't know yet if increasing your HDL will decrease your risk for heart attacks and strokes. *but* we do know that exercise is good for you, so keep on moving at least 30-60 minutes every day. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Diet & exercise: Moderate exercise (about 30 minutes five times a week) reduces LDL cholesterol and raises HDL cholesterol. Smoking can lower HDL levels, so stop smoking if you do. Eat lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean sources of protein. Include monounsaturated fats in your diet- olive oil/canola oil. Moderate consumption of alcohol may also positively impact HDL levels. 1 glass of wine a day. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Lifestyle measures.: The best way to raise cardioprotective HDL is cardiovascular exercise. Shoot for forty or forty-five minutes daily. Supplementation with no-flush Niacin may help as well, 2000 to 3000mg daily in divided doses. Fish oil supplements may help this as well, as healthy fats can raise the HDL. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Many do, don't try: Many medications, including those to treat cholesterol raise hdl, fibrates, Niacin and even statins. Other medications like estrogen also raise hdl, but there is no study yet showing that raising HDL with medications independently of other effects is beneficial. There are some new drugs on the horizon that raise hdl, but no proof yet that they reduce risk of heart disease.. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
You don't want to: Hdl stands for high density lipoprotein cholesterol - the good ('h' from 'healthy') cholesterol that 'cleans' the endothelium (blood vessel lining) of fatty particles that lead to blockages. In fact, one would want to have the highest HDL possible, at least 40 mg/dl for men and 50 mg/dl for women. Being lean and exercising, not smoking are the bat ways to increase your hdl. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
